Delete someone else's video from YouTube without an account

If you want delete someone else's video from YouTube without an account, perhaps because in your opinion it violates some terms of use of the service (for example it violates copyright or presents inappropriate content), know that you can try to send a report to the staff of the famous platform (which is owned by Google) and hope that the your request is accepted.



Copyright infringement


If you want to send a report regarding an alleged copyright infringement, you can use a specific form that can be completed from the browser, acting both from a computer and from a mobile phone (also in the latter case via the browser and not from the YouTube app).

To proceed, linked to this YouTube page, check the box I'm not a robot (if you are asked to carry out the security check) and indicate one of the options relating to the type of report you want to make (eg. Copyright infringement).


Then indicate who is affected by the violation by selecting one of the options listed in the box Copyright Infringement - Who Affected? (Eg. I!, if the violation harms you personally; My company, my organization or my client, if the violation affects your company, or Another copyright owner, if the violation affects another person).


Now, specify theVideo url that is affected by the violation, describe the work that is the subject of the violation by selecting one of the items indicated in the menu Select an item (Eg. My name, My software, etc.) and fill in the fields in the box Videos to remove. If you have other videos to report, click the button (+) Add another video and repeat the steps I indicated in the previous lines.

Finally, fill out the form Tell us about yourself specifying yours name, your mailing address, your number of phone, and so on; put the check mark on all the boxes in the box at the bottom of the page, put your digital signature by providing your name e last name in the appropriate box click on the button Submit a complaint to send the report.

I cannot guarantee that the reported video will actually be removed from YouTube, but you can rest assured that your report will be taken care of and will be addressed by the staff of the Google video sharing platform.

Inappropriate content


Watching a video on YouTube you noticed inappropriate content and do you want to report the thing to have the movie removed from the platform? To send your request, click on the symbol (...) placed under the video in question (if you are acting from the web version of YouTube) or in the upper right corner of its playback screen (if you are acting through the official app for Android or iOS) e, in the menu that opens , select the option Report.


Then specify the type of inappropriate content present in the video (eg. Content of a sexual nature, Violent or repulsive content, etc.) and confirm the sending of the report by selecting the item again Report. At this point, all you have to do is wait and hope that YouTube will remove the content, as long as it actually violates the terms of use of the service.
